Sweet Potato Chorizo Hash

Sweet potato is considered paleo, did you not know? Ahhhh maybe because the word “sweet” is in it, you thought that might not be a good idea.  Sweet potatoes have so many benefits because they are a whole food.  Don’t get me started or you’ll starve before you ever get to the recipe. Serves 4-6.

  • 1 pound sweet potatoes washed, trimmed, not peeled and diced then steamed
  • 1 C diced onion
  • 1C diced yellow zucchini
  • 2 stalks of flat kale, deveined, chopped length and width
  • 1T olive oil
  • 1 pound chorizo sausage, sliced and chopped into quarters…or even better yet, remove the casing and it’s a lot easier….you want chunky…not medallions…this is hash, remember?
  • sea salt
  • garlic powder
  • 1/2 C cilantro chopped

Sweet potatoes are already done for you above and after steaming leave the top on. Then gather and tackle dicing the onion, and yellow zucchini (green ok) and kale. Heat up a large sauté pan or skillet (stainless or cast iron are preferred or even copper; learn to phase out non-stick ware due to endocrine disruption, not to mention you have to buy a new set every year) add the oil to the heated skillet and then sauté the onions and zucchini (sometimes I add mushrooms) until a bit browned.

Sizzle the chorizo in another skillet until browned, then add to the veggies with some of the drippings (or not…it’s your call).  Then add in the steamed sweet potatoes, cilantro, toss and blend and add sea salt and garlic powder to taste.

Serve as the main dish at dinner with a salad or serve as a breakfast portion with poached eggs as pictured here.
